I’m not in either of these fields but one of my best friend’s sister is an occupational therapy assistant and when she graduated she had tons of job offers. I think they are really in demand. Have him check into that! Sports pt is very competitive so he may have a harder time trying to get into that.

While I don’t know much about those programs themselves, I have been applying to physical therapy schools (the doctorate programs) for the last year and find that experience in several different PT settings is very important to them.  Hospital/inpatient, outpatient (sports rehab, spine specialists, just regular PTs people go to for various reasons, etc), pediatric, and even home health are all different settings.  While these were super important for my applications, they were second to pre-req grades.  I had like a thousand hours in 3 different settings, but too many B’s on my pre-reqs so I was denied from all schools last year.  Hopefully this year, having retaken a bunch, I have better luck 🙂  Good luck to him!  PTA is a very rewarding career!
